That Bayern fan said they have the best goalkeeper in the world.. I don't understand? Petr Cech plays for Chelsea, not Bayern. Also comparing Muller to Mata is laughable.

Hope we play this:

Drogba

Torres - Mata - *Sturridge/Kalou

Mikel - Lamps

Cole - Luiz - Cahill - Bosingwa

Cech

*If Sturridge is playing well by the 19th, play him, if not Kalou.

Who's better in each area:

Defense: Chelsea

Midfield: Pretty even, we are slightly better though

Attack: Bayern

This game, on paper, seems to be very even

I'd say:

GK- dead even. Neuer would normally be slightly better than Cech but Petr has been just incredible in recent weeks.

Defence: Chelsea, by miles.

Midfield: Bayern

Attack: Even, as their defensive suspensions cancel out their attacker's individual abilities.

So it's still more or less evenly matched, one thing in our favour is the internal trouble between Robben and Ribery, and the inescapable fact that Gomez goes missing on the big occasion more often than not.

Hey guys, Im a Bayern fan & I wanna congradulate you guys for that win over Barcelona! I don't personally enjoy that style of play but it's a style that can be very effective against a club like Barcelona. Cech was absolutely brilliant & so was Drogba apart from all those dives. It will be a great final & both teams have strengths they can play to to gain some sort of edge in the match.

Ultimately I think that Bayern will win this because Bayern has more attacking power than Chelsea but if Cech pulls another one of those matches anything can happen. Bayern will indeed be missing Gustavo who is out main ball winner in the midfield, Badstuber who has absolutely been brilliant as a CB this season & Alaba who has been incredible for a 19 year old who hasn't even played 10 matches as LB.. It's quite clear that Kroos & Schweinsteiger will play the midfield together while Tymoschuk will play as a CB, but the fullback position can be different than people think. Bayern has Contento who is a pure LB & has been pretty good in the matches he played this year & Pranjic who is a left wing that can even play LB if need be but that would not be the main option.

Whatever happens, the defense will pretty much be of similar strength apart from Lahm so they will need to attack from the side where Lahm is not to get through. In terms of Goalkeeping, Bayern has a slight edge for having the best keeper in the world but I personally rate Cech VERY high, perhaps even higher than Casillas this year so they can both change the outcome of a match. The midfield I would give Bayern an edge on the offensive side but in terms of defense Chelsea probably wins this. If Schweinsteiger come back to his full level of fitness like he was at the begining of the year though, he will be a monster both offensively & defensively but 3 weeks is a short period of time to reach this level. In offense though, Bayern clearly has the edge because of Robben & Ribery. Drogba is more of a versatile striker but he is not as prolific as Gomez has been this year but he still will be a major threat. Muller & Mata are of similar skill in my opinion so that's no factor.

Bayern plays a possession game mostly but doesn't get boring like Barca does without a striker. I believe that Chelsea will have to play a similar game than they played against Barcelona to have a chance to win it because Bayern will most definitely keep possession of the ball at a 60/40 percentage more or less & the defense & defensive midfield will be missing some of their key components. Mind you, Tymoschuk might be better than Badstuber on a counter attack because he is a defensive midfielder & has more pace than Badstuber but that's left to be seen.

I don't know much about Chelsea so I will not start saying things without knowing but I have seen Chelsea play a few times this year since I sort of knew that they would get far, but this far has been a surprise to me & probably most of you as well. Im just really happy to not have any spanish sides in this final for a change!

My prediction is a 3-1 win for Bayern because they respond extermely well to pressure, they might be inconsistent in the league but they are as consistent as it gets in the Champions League, they will be at home & it's common knowledge that Germans are nearly impossible to beat at home & they were able to beat Madrid, who has been the best club in the world this year in my opinion, as dirty & cocky they may be..

Anyways, good luck guys & Congrats for getting there against all odds!

(Im not here to troll anyone FYI, I am here to see your opinion of this matchup who will probably be one of the most interesting one in a while!)

If we win, will Roman get a medal aswell? I remember Moratti getting one.

Mate I think he will keep big ears in his office and look at it constantly

Nice to hear from a Bayern fan and although you say that you respond well to pressure we also respond well to pressure and you have the tag of being favourites to win. Last time that happened, you came unstuck against Basel in the first leg and the fact that your playing at home will put even more pressure on your boys. I've also realised that Gomez tends to go missing in the bigger games, whereas Drogs is always at the fore front leading.

In terms of team, i think we have to go:

Cech

Bosingwa Cahill Luiz Cole

Lampard Mikel

Kalou Mata Malouda

Drogba

Obviously Malouda might not be a popular choice, but one thing he does is track back and help out which Sturridge can't do and i doubt RDM will play Torres on the wing when he hardly ever does. We'll need to play a game similar to the one against Valencia, where we absorb all their attacks and then counter mainly using Kalou, Mata and Drogba

Ofcourse they will.

We are enemy of football because we parked the bus against "best team in Century" Barcelona, and they dominated Real with style and on penalties. Nobody will cheer for us, but it's better, they are favorites, but we tend to do well against favorites so watch out Bayern.

I'm really concerned about our defence and our engine for this game. Big loss for us. Big gaz looks to have done more damage to his hamstring than first thought and if he's out I despair for the defence. As for rambo being out that's massive, no one can put the shift in that he does with his lung busting runs. Hate that its a month away as I can do nothing but think about this

Give Mata a rest, actually let him miss the QPR game, we need this guy back to how he was at the start of the season.

I'm sorry. what I meant was JM should be kept fresh as he lacks in stamina and is already somewhat fatigued. There we go. One coherent sentence. That's something, isn't it?

LMAO, what an idiot. Every single person I've talked to said stuff like "Fuck Bayern" and "Only Chelsea deserve to win this final" etc., so how on earth is everybody going to support Munich?!

You guys have been playing very well so far, but I have to go with Bayern Munich on this one. They have been slightly better generally and they're at home, so it's leaning towards them.

I am unbiased this final though, so I wish you the best of luck, would be fun to see you win as well!
